Author Notes

I was thinking about green stuff because of all of my student loans. No, money still doesn’t grow on trees, but broccoli grows on stalks and you get to eat it. This broccoli dish is bright, light and easy and is a great accompaniment to pasta, chicken or really anything else. Raisins seem like a strange thing in vegetables, but they add the slightest bit of sweetness and mellow out with the salty, acidic accompaniment of the broccoli. —OB Cookie
